I think that I really am a member of the Undead. I'm not really alive--can't do half the stuff live people do. I don't seem to be able to die. I just go on and on in a no-person's land, and deadly poison is circulating in my blood. If I bite you, you too will fall to this dreadful disease. Vampyre.

People have been suspecting that of me for a long time, but I think it's because I'm really pale and wear black and work at nights.

My daughter thinks that of me, too, because I move so slowly and don't show much emotion when she gets frustrated at me for a lot of reasons. She will be better off once I kick off this mortal coil, as long as she can support her kids. She is not well and she considers herself the living dead, too. You seem to have some company, at least in spirit if not in the harsh reality you face. Marianne
